A Caesar, sometimes referred to as a "Bloody Caesar", [Canadian Oxford Dictionary's headwords "Bloody Caesar" and "Caesar"².] after the similar Bloody Mary, is a cocktail popular mainly in Canada. It typically contains vodka, clamato (a blend of tomato juice and clam broth), Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco sauce, and is served on the rocks in a large, celery salt-rimmed glass, and typically garnished with a stalk of celery and wedge of lime. A common nickname for a version without vodka is "Virgin Caesar". In the U.S. it is known as a clamdigger.Fact|date=July 2007

During the early 2000s, Mott's printed the Caesar recipe on bottles of the Clamato juice sold in the United States, but the cocktail drink remains relatively unknown there.Fact|date=October 2007


The cocktail was invented by bartender Walter Chell at the Owl's Nest Bar in the Calgary Inn (now Calgary Westin Hotel) in Calgary, Alberta in 1969, to accompany the opening of a new restaurant, Marco's. In its original form, it contained tomato juice and mashed clams; Clamato had only just been released (with the assistance of Chell) by the Mott's company that very year, and was not yet widely known or available.

Starting in 2002, Mott's began marketing pre-mixed Caesars in twelve-ounce bottles.

Variations can include substituted or added ingredients, like salt and pepper, cayenne pepper, horseradish, or lemon juice, seasoning salt or lemon pepper (rather than celery salt), a garnish of dill pickled cucumber, spicy pickled green bean or asparagus. Occasionally a prawn (especially in seafood restaurants) or crisp bacon is used as a garnish.
